<< Good evening, I'm meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. Clear skies will prevail
Wednesday evening and overnight.
Overall, it will be pleasant with light
wind and temperatures that won't be as
cold as last night. Lows are forecast
in the low to mid 40s. High pressure
will dominate the late week forecast.
Expect plenty of sunshine Thursday and
Friday with just a few passing clouds
as a warm front lifts to our north.
With the front north of us, we'll be in
the warm sector of air; and with
southerly breezes, expect temperatures
to respond! Highs Thursday are
forecast in the mid 70s - with low 80s
by Friday. Our next chance of rain
arrives this weekend. Models are
indicating a cold front pushing across
Virginia late Saturday into Sunday.
This may mean showers and a chance of
thunderstorms, but it doesn't look like
an event that will make us soggy all


weekend. The current thinking is that
Saturday will start dry, and likely
stay that way until sometime in the mid
afternoon. Then expect scattered
showers and storms as the front
presses to the east Saturday night,
showers will come to an end. If there's
a stray shower early Sunday, it will
leave, making way for increasing
sunshine for the rest of the day.
Temperatures won't be sharply affected
by the boundary. Highs Saturday are
forecast around the mid 70s. Lower 70s
are slated Sunday. The first two or
three days of next week look partly
sunny, with highs near 70. WEDNESDAY
NIGHT: Mostly clear. Not as cool. Low:
44 THURSDAY: Sunny. Warm breezes.
High: 76 For weather anytime turn to

Tuesday In the First game Angela Tincher
topped the 2-thousand strikeout mark in


her career, she is only the 3rd player
in N-C-A-A history to reach that
milestone.


The Hokies will now turn their
attention to the post-season. Tech
will look to defend their A-C-C
Tournament crown when they travel to
College Park Maryland next week.


The Hokies who are ranked in the
Top 25, will most likely have to go
through North Carolina at the
Conference Tournament for the Title, a
team that took 2 of three from the
Hokies this past weekend but things
seem to be back on track for Tincher
and company.

jjadhon@wdbj7.com It was one of the strangest moments
in American Idol history last night.


CHANNEL=A VO-NAT


VO-NAT Judge Paula Abdul was giving


contestant Jason Castro a critique of
his two songs. The only problem was
Castro had only sung once. His second
song was scheduled for later in the
show.


Abdul says she got confused when she
wrote notes on two singers on Castro's
card.


Now fans are wondering if this proves


the judges' comments are written in
advance.
